When it comes to awards, there are few more prestigious than those handed out by Kelley Blue Book. KBB.com is a widely respected resource for car shoppers, so earning awards from them – in particular, their Best Buy Awards – means a lot to automakers and dealers all over the country. That’s why we’re so stoked that one Toyota vehicle actually earned two different Kelley Blue Book Best Buy Awards for the 2021 model year. Which vehicle was that? The RAV4, of course.
Which awards did the RAV4 win?
The Toyota RAV4 has become one of the most popular and lauded vehicles on the lineup over the past few years, so it’s no surprise that it’s the model that earned two different honors in the KBB.com Best Buy Awards. On one hand, the 2021 Toyota RAV4 earned the honors in the Compact SUV category, which is super exciting. But to make things even better, the new 2021 Toyota RAV4 Prime earned the honors for the Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle category.
Compact SUV Best Buy of 2021
Editors at Kelley Blue Book claim that the compact SUV segment is arguably the hottest vehicle segment of them all, and that the 2021 Toyota RAV4 shines brighter than the rest of the vehicles in its class. Highlights of the model according to them include its wide variety of options to choose from, its sturdy selection of standard safety features, an excellent history when it comes to reliability and resale value, and more.
Plug-in Hybrid Vehicle Best Buy of 2021
Highlights of the PHEV version of the RAV4 as it wins the plug-in hybrid vehicle category – which means it not only beat out other PHEV SUVs but sedans as well – include its 42 miles or pure-electric range, its incredible power ratings, its eligibility for the federal tax credit and the fact that it drives just as well as the traditional RAV4 compact SUV.
